Wow! Where to start with the McCarty team?? I honestly could not say enough to express my sincere appreciation for all that they have done for us. I would like to back track first by giving a brief background on our home buying experience. Before meeting the McCarty team, we started our home buying process like many other first time home buyers. We had no clue where to start and started our journey with a realtor who, for lack of better words, didn't get things started on the right foot. For several weeks we talked to different people, tried to do things "on our own" for a short bout and started to have a general consensus that we would never find a real estate agent who would have US in their best interest. Until....WE MET THE MCCARTY TEAM! I am SO thankful that a simple phone call asking to look at a house that was for sale, led us to "the best of the best" in my opinion. To start, Michael was the person who sealed the deal for us. Unlike the rest, he had something to offer US; his knowledge and experience in this industry. I'd also like to add that he was extremely professional and organized. Also unlike the others, Michael came prepared with a folder full of information, a timeline, and a powerpoint...all aimed at educating us. We really appreciated the fact that Michael took the time to help us understand how the home buying process works. Before we had even "agreed" to work exclusively with the McCarty team, Michael seemed invested in us, but I would also like to add that he was not pushy. This was major for us because we had talked to many real estate agents who were either extremely pushy or totally disinterested. Michael gave us all the tools we needed and then left the choice up to US. There was no doubt in my mind that we made the right decision to work with this team. As far as the home searching process, I would like to mention Debbie who showed us many homes, and how awesome she is. From our experience, it's a seller's market right now and houses are going QUICK. If we wanted to put an offer on a house, we knew we needed to do it FAST. Debbie was so accommodating and made so many last minute trips to get us in to see the houses that we wanted to see. Rain or shine, night or day, Debbie was there to help us. Debbie is also a person who makes you feel comfortable during the process and was always able to answer our questions. Finally, I have to mention Jennifer and just how amazing she is. Jennifer handled all of our "offers" and contracts and was the most accommodating person I have ever met! As I've already said, the market wasn't exactly in our favor because things were moving FAST. Jennifer wouldn't let things wait until the next day, she was always on top of things. There were many nights were I had reached out to Jennifer, WAY outside of "working hours" in my opinion, asking her to put in an offer for us, and she ALWAYS came through. And I can't leave out the fact that she was completely open to me bugging her with tons of text messages at all times of the day. As first time home buyers, Jennifer was always able to answer questions on the "what if" situations. She was extremely knowledgeable and I will never be able to say enough to thank her! To finish, I'd just like to say that I also appreciated the fact that we worked with a "team" as opposed to one person. I never got the feeling that we were a burden or too much to handle. Everyone was able to coordinate effectively and get us whatever we needed, when we needed it. AND, I have to mention that the McCarty team also provides extremely good recommendations. From the lender to the inspector, we went with the people they recommended and couldn't have been happier. That is definitely worth something! I have to say that working with the McCarty team was the best decision we could have made, and made buying our first home that much more special.
